    I am running the tethered jailbreak and it was not complicated at all. It took maybe 10 minutes to download redsn0w and have my iphone 4 jailbroken. Right now I am not going crazy installing everything just going with the bare minimum of Haptic Pro and Lock Info for now. Probably will install BiteSMS after the next Beta release based on feedback I have read it looks stable.

    If you've already got the untethered JB on the iPhone 4, I say wait for the untethered JB. It should be out soon. My phone crashed with that disastrous Facebook update last week, and I had to restore from scratch, and lost all my JB hacks in the process. I upgraded to iOS5 and installed the tethered JB, but its such a PITA to hook up to the computer whenever I need to reboot. Plus, there are so many little things that keep crashing, causing the phone to restart (not everything is iOS5 compatible yet), so its not really avoidable. Just my 2 cents.

    Yes it is really that easy. And for now I would just install the bare minimum because of the tethered aspect.

    well...

    redsnow will hold your hand throughout the process.

    It's pretty easy, and there are videos on youtube showing you how to do it.

    Put a little elbow grease in to it and you'll be jailbroken

    Dont be so harsh on him, he is just making sure. I know, I had all those questions when I was jailbreaking for the first time.

    clarification: except for iPhone 4S and iPad 2... still not jailbreak for iOS 5 for those devices whatsoever.

    I would say if you're this unsure about the process and what's involved in it, you probably shouldn't jailbreak. It's not something I would do without at least a vague idea of what it was I was actually doing.
